Dear All,

Iím planning to buy Toyota belta 1000cc car. But I heard belta 1000cc is not good at fuel consumption. People say, it does about 9 km per liter city (short distance) and 12 km per liter long distance.

Please advise me regarding this.

Thanks.

what you have heard is correct. we have two in our office. city -9 outstation 13. this is with no aggressive driving at all. so the figures would be worse if you have a heavy foot. :D

on top of that this is not a comfortable car either. my ek3 and familia was much more comfortable than belta. mind you being a 10 year old cars than belta.

but soon your thread will be flooded with so many replies from so many gurus' who will have thousand reasons to insist you buy a belta. no offense to Toyota owners. :D

I also agree to evergreen, there are lot of good cars in every aspects better than 1000CC Belta; though they are bit older.

At the time of my 1000cc Belta was imported, it had done 1695 Kms. I kept records on mileage and fuel cost of the vehicle from the date of importation to date.

Some people use to calculate mileage by re-fueling few liters at the odometer indicator at half and reading the mileage when the odometer comes down to same level. It is incorrect and gives wrong results.

The best way to determine the fuel consumption is to fill up the tank, record the mileage, drive normally until the tank is less than half full, fill up the tank again and record the mileage and how many liters it took to fill up the tank. The cost for the filling up the tank for the 2nd time is the actual cost for the real mileage which is the difference between 1st and 2nd recorded mileages.

I filled up the tank fully at the odometer reading was 1818 kms. I again filled up the tank fully at a time when it was half and the odometer reading was 2078 kms. It took 18.4 liters to fill up the tank and the cost for the fuel was Rs. 2,300.00. Therefore, it had used up 18.4 liters to run 260kms. That means it has run 14.13 kms per a liter at a cost of Rs. 8.84 per a km.

To confirm the actual cost further, it needs the vehicle to run longer. So, I kept recoding the mileage and fuel cost over a period of time.

Present reading of the odometer is 3580 kms while the total cost for the fuel used so far is Rs. 16,430.00. As it has done 1885 kms for Rs. 16,430.00, it confirms that my Belta is running 14.34 kms per a liter at a cost of Rs. 8.72 per a km in city driving with A/C turned on.

I have still not used it for long distances outside the city and I believe it would run at least 16.00 kms per a liter which is still less than what Toyota Motor Corporation claimed.

According to the Toyota News Release (http://www.toyota.co...ws/05/1128.html), It provides excellent driving performance with class-leading fuel efficiency of 22.0km/l (1.0-liter engine) under the 10-15 Japanese test cycle, as certified by Japan's Ministry of Land, Infrastructure and Transport.

A large displacement engine generally requires more fuel to run it than a smaller engine.

dude, no one in this forum (except a few) calculate the fuel figures by looking at the level indicator :D

we know for a fact that belta 1000cc is not "very good" on fuel. and it gives average fuel figures given by a corolla 110 or any similar car.


14km/litre is absurd mate, and your definition of city driving refers to a town like hambantota??

1- If you really beleive thta your car had a genuine milage of under 2000km, you my friend have been punked.
2- Bigger engines dont necessarily consume more fuel. So your last statement is wrong.

Sorry, didn't mean that quite the way it sounded, plus I'd like to know where you drive this car.

piyal815,

Did you import the car by yourself or you bought the car from a Srilanka dealer.Do not believe the odometer cars you buy from dealers in Srilanka As the are all reduced to get few thousands of rupees.

Petrol test has to be done full tank, fill same till it fills to top and run in traffic for 100 Kms then top the tank up get the liter reading calculate after that you do another 100 Kms out of Colombo on a road where no traffic get the reading after 100 Kms top up again get the reading you can get the exact Kms for a liter of petrol.You can do town and country and get a reading if you want further more.
